RV on the MoveWherever you live, winter means cooler temperatures. If you're not going to use your RV during the cooler weather, you must winterize your RV.

Why winterize your RV? You want to protect the plumbing in your RV just as you protect the plumbing in your house. Freezing temperatures can mean freezing pipes. If the pipes freeze, you could find out later that burst water heaters and burst pipes have flooded your RV. If winterizing plumbing is outside your skill set, you can do what many people do and ask an RV dealership to winterize the plumbing for you.

Besides the plumbing, there are other steps you need to take before winter.
  1. Check the tires. Be sure they are inflated properly since cold weather can lead to low tire pressure. If your tires are properly inflated at the beginning of winter, then you are less likely to find your RV sitting on flat tires come spring.
  2. Check the seals around doors and windows. Replace the seals if they are worn. Worn seals can mean winter air gets into your RV. That cold air can damage other things inside, such as seat cushions and paint.
  3. Clean your RV. Take out cans of food and other things that might explode when the temperatures are freezing. You don't want to come back to your RV and find that a can of soda or chili exploded all over the inside of the vehicle.
  4. Parked outside. If your RV is going to be parked outside for the winter, consider adding extra insulation, such as plastic or blankets, on the inside of the windows. This will help keep the cold air out, minimizing any issues chilly air might bring to the inside of your RV.
Even if you are still using your RV, now's a great time to plan for when you will need to winterize it. While you are doing that, make an appointment to review your RV insurance with an independent insurance agent and see if they have any more tips for protecting your investment.
